365 New Chances

I’ve been thinking about “New Year’s Resolutions” and how making a resolution can lead to increased anxiety and depression by making people feel like they HAVE to do what they resolved to do. So instead of making a resolution, I have decided to make a New Year’s Amelioration◊ instead!

This next year, I want to learn to love myself. All of myself, not just parts of myself. I want to better myself and be the best that I can be. I am worth more than the way I have been treating myself.

I am surrounded by inspiration and motivation everywhere I look. My friends, my family, even strangers on the internet all offer encouragement and believe in me. More importantly, I believe in me. I know I can do this, and I know there will be times I will slip up. But no matter what, I will always have someone there to lift me back up. And there are 365 new chances every year; not all of them have to be successful, but I at least have to try.

 

◊the act of making something better; improvement

I love grilled cheese and moscato. I'm the most awkward person you'll ever meet; it takes me a while to warm up to people, even people I've known for years. Please bear with me.
